Arrival Story:
Boots' original owner died, leaving behind Boots and Suzy, an aging chocolate lab. Suzy was taken in by the granddaughter but she didn't want Boots. The Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana took on the task of finding a new home for Boots. He was adopted and brought back twice. The second time it was for snapping at a child. He had probably never been around children, and was obviously traumatized when he came back. He had been up for adoption for several months, when I was asked to foster him. Boots is a sweet, loyal and affectionate dog, so it didn't take very long for me to fall in love with him!!! He is very scared of men and probably wouldn't make a good pet for someone who didn't have lots of dog experience and patience. We are working on his many emotional issues and trying to socialize him with the other pups. Because of his history and nervousness, (and I fell completely in love with him) I decided that he needed the stability of a loving forever home where he would be comfortable, happy and healthy. No more adoption days with crowds of people and lots of barking dogs for this boy!!!! He will be with me and the rest of the "Goobersmooches" for the rest of his life!

Boots' emotional problems stem from being caged for several months after his owner died. He is not the kind of dog that does well with confinement...he needs a job to keep him healthy and sane. He may never be able to overcome all the trauma he experienced, but he does have a furever home where he will be loved and cared for the rest of his life!

Three years ago today I came to live with my Mom! I was a scared, lonely boy before. I had been adopted and brought back several times. That feels terrible...first they want you, then decide they don't want you. I remember how scared I was when I first went home with mom. She was supposed to be my foster mom but she said she couldn't let go of me because I had moved around so much. She wanted me to have a stable home! I'm so glad! I've come a long way and I am now such a happy boy! Mom has promised me that we will be a family furever!


Our Friend Rosie is Missing! Please Help!

Rosie escaped the morning of 11-5-09 from her pet sitter's fenced backyard. She actually managed to unlatch the gate and presumably is headed for home. Her owner is one of my best friends and was scheduled to go out of town today hence the need for a pet sitter.

Rosie is an adult, female, German Shepherd with a very black colored face. AC saw her at North Star and Northwest Blvd. at 10:00 AM this morning but couldn't catch her. If you find her or think you've seen her please call 614-297-8380 or 614-787-1405. She is normally a friendly dog but was very scared when she was last sighted and took off running. Please let us know if you see her.

Rosie was wearing a pink gingham collar, she has all her tags on.

Please help me spread the word to anyone you know who lives in the Columbus area. Share this message on Facebook and retweet on Twitter.

We are worried sick for Rosie's safety.

Thank you for any help!
